Even with unpredictable weather, people in a lot of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling warmer and it’s an important time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for whatever this summer brings.
As an air conditioner owner, you should learn everything you can about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates how efficient your air conditioner is. If you don’t know your current air conditioner’s SEER, ask your technician during your next air conditioner service appointment. He or she can help you understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners usually have a considerably lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners we offer now. A lower SEER means you could be wasting money on utility bills due to your system’s inefficiency. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and should save you a significant amount of money in the long term. If you want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, just ask your service technician.
Other factors will decide if you should buy a new air conditioner or continue with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system, but knowing your system’s efficiency is very important.
